Dungen - Allas Sak (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 28-MXSU312072.2
One of the great modern psychedelic / progressive bands out of Sweden return after a long wait for another fine release!

"Allas Sak. Those two Swedish words translate loosely into English as “everyone’s thing” or maybe “anyone’s thing.” They not only provide the title for Dungen’s latest collection of sophisticated psychedelic rock, but explains how the band works creatively and collaboratively.

It’s been five years since the last Dungen album, 2010’s Skit I Allt, which is by far the longest interval between releases for a band that proved especially prolific and inspired during the 2000s. During that time, the band garnered a worldwide fan base and coalesced into a full band that includes Reine Fiske on guitar, Mattias Gustavsson on bass, Johan Holmegard on drums and frontman Gustav Ejstes on keys and vocals. Starting with 2007’s Tio Bitar and 2009’s 4, the band members helped Ejstes realize his own vision while adding flourishes of their own. As a result, Dungen grew into something bigger and more formidable: one of the best and most consistently inventive psych rock bands in the world.

Allas Sak picks up where Dungen’s previous album left off, but somehow it sounds bolder and livelier, feistier yet more focused. The quartet jam with greater purpose and principle on songs like the otherworldly instrumental “Franks Kaktus” and the stately “En Gång Om Året,” while the prismatic “Flickor Och Pojkar” and closer “Sova” reveal subtle nuances in the band’s arrangements. "Akt Dit" moves like a well-told story, with piano and bass setting the scene, the vocals tracing the rising action, and a saxophone solo providing the climax.

Allas Sak is about everyday matters: family, friends, the fine texture of life. Common but never mundane, these subjects anchor the music in the here and now, while the music lends a certain grandeur to ordinary moments."
